The photographic exhibition LIGHT LINES re-frames details of Art Deco architecture in the Southern Riverina, using mainly Art Deco-period cameras. His black and white images capture the interplay of light and shadows on these highly structured facades. Celebrating the machine age, Art Deco combined new technologies with ancient forms and motifs drawn from Mesoamerica and Egypt. Art Deco architecture emphasised linear symmetry, using strong and streamlined forms intended to invoke a sense of progress. Light Lines draws the observer's eye, imparting a sense of direction: onwards and upwards, a future of progress awaits. Estimated 45,000 visitors
